Laidneon: Console for the Ram (FINISHED)

Post by LaidNeon » Fri Feb 26, 2010 2:27 am

Figured i would post up the pics i have of what has been consuming my time. Should have this thing in primer by the end of next week. Hoping to have this wrapped in black vinyl later. Obviously it will need to be stitched so i will be letting a pro take care of it.

I mean like the inside cubbys and all that. How the stock one, you fold it up and theres space to put your wallet, change, etc. Are you doing anything special for that?

It's going to have cup holders & 3 10" woofers. I really don't have room for anything else. I did want to make a stash spot for my pistol but I doubt I will

3/4" MDF I used a circular saw for the straight cuts, a jigsaw for all the curved cuts, & I used a router for a few notches
